Tom Moody, 6'7": This huge Australian all-rounder overcame his testiness against the short ball early in his career and continued to have a fulfilling career that included two World Cup wins. More than just a part-time medium pacer, Moody could swing the ball and was safe as a house in the slips. Moody appeared in 8 Tests and 76 ODIs for Australia and saw his career curtailed by back injury which was may have been sustained due to his height. Since retirement, Moody has coached Sri Lanka, taking them to the 2007 World Cup final, also been associated with Kings XI Punjab in the IPL.
